People Who Worked On Someone Else's Computer Share The Most Disturbing Thing They Found.

Computers are a very personal storage centre, and when you take a computer in to get fixed, things can be seen by others that weren't meant to.

Below are 20 hilarious stories of people who worked on someone else's computer...and what they found. Check them out!


1. A customer brought his old HP tower in, and it absolutely reeked, a smell I can't even describe accurately. We end up having to wrap it in garbage bags and duct tape every opening to stop it from stinking up the tech area. The next day we come in and the bag is slightly open. We unwrap the PC and as soon as we touch it you hear rustling and the drive tray pops open. It was literally like you see in horror movies a RIVER of cockroaches pour out of the thing.

We yank the power cords and run it outside, as well as spend the next 4 months trying different types of extermination to get rid of the infestation of our store.

It was so bad a event that a entire store full of introverted and non-confrontational techies managed enough bravery to call up the guy and actually tell him how unacceptable it was and that he needs to get his stuff and leave. The guy responded, "oh its not that bad really" but didn't give up much of a fight other than that. I can't even begin to imagine how awful of conditions this guy must've lived in to have a PC this awful, I don't even know how the thing functioned.

Did you charge him for the debugging?)

2. He had a folder on his computer entitled 'Barely Regal' devoted to racy photos of Sarah Ferguson, former Duchess of York.

3. I work as an accountant now, but in a former life I did a stint in tech support. I remember getting a report that a printer was constantly jamming. I arrived and started checking all the usual spots for paper fragments to get stuck in the rollers. I flipped down the back cover and a chunk of fried chicken fell out.

I still have no idea.

4. A photo album full of polar bears with coke bottles photoshopped onto their hands, like very badly done. Like 40 photos. I was just trying to update a friends drivers and couldn't resist opening the folder called coke bears.

5. Found a load of porn while working on a clients computer. Lots of Brazzers cuts and fragments of videos. Come to find out, he wasn't obsessed with porn at all; he was actually an editor for Brazzers.

6. Read a story on here about a Geek Squad-type guy who found a bunch of gory murder scene photos. Turned out the owner was a homicide detective.

7. A relative once asked me too help find some files on her very cluttered hard disk. When search failed me, I started browsing through folders when I found it - pictures of pillows - every single type of pillow possible, with lots of different colours and decorations. There were literally thousands of pictures. Including some with what looked like bloodstains on them.

8. My grandmother passed away recently, and my 87 year old grandfather got a new girlfriend (27 years younger) about 2 months later. I was setting up a printer for his laptop, and in his bookmarks he had a few links to Viagra distributors. So now I know that my grandfather gets laid far more often than I do, and needs medication to get it up (which makes sense I suppose).

9. Worked at a law firm. Started getting calls in the morning that some random attorneys could not log in. When we checked out their computer, it turned out they were ignoring their username which was defaulted to the last user logged in. It turned out someone was logging in as user 'library'.

Checked out the law library and sure enough, a sticky note with the library username and password existed just above the monitor.

This routine persisted for a few more weeks as I tried to figure out how to catch the culprit. Sure I could disable the account, but then we never find out who is ducking in to random offices surfing porn (that was in the cache of the 'library' user account on the local machine).

We used a startup script called kixtart. Highly configurable to do whatever you need it to do. So I added to the startup script to email the administration group whenever the 'library' user logs in.

1st night, I get the email.. late at night... (Continued...)


I call security and ask them to check our floor. Nothing too unusual. We ask them to check floors occasionally due to stuck open doors from positive airflow etc... They replied back all clear. Huh? Weird. O....K?

2nd night...Same story, nothing unusual reported back from security. However, the next morning I come in to have a request from and attorney to help him log in, same computer from the night before, default user... you guessed it, 'library'. This attorney had poor eyesight. As I'm clicking away checking out the browsing history our mystery library user left behind I notice something out of the corner of my eye. A couple dabs of Elmer's glue. It's early. Pre-coffee.. what's an attorney doing with glue? Then I realize what I'm staring at. Not glue. I threw up in my mouth a little.

Fast forward a week, happens again. Email notification late at night. Security called. Also notice another attorney logged in a few offices down. I called him immediately and asked him to check the office where we saw the library user logged in. He checks and reports back a few minutes later, "nothing unusual, just a security guard". I just called security no less than 2 minutes before. No way they could get to the top floor in time to check on our request. It was the security guard yanking on his break.

Notified the building manager the following morning. They pulled him in, questioned him and he admitted his guilt. He was dismissed immediately.

10. Was asked onto double check a bunch of computers for pictures and identifying information before recycling the towers. Found a win 98 machine that hadn't seen the Internet in a very long time. And on it was napster...... just like we choose to remember it. Along with ICQ, yahoo messenger, and compuserve.

11. I had a coworker that wanted me to come by his house to fix his PC. This was like 15 years ago. He takes me up to his bedroom. Not TOO unusual. He was having internet connection issues. I was so focused on checking cabling to his modem, router etc. under the desk that it took me a while to also notice next to the desk the camera on a tripod. Pointed at the bed. It all clicked when I finally got the interwebs working again, launched his browser, and his homepage was some couples-sharing kink website.

12. Pictures of graveyards at night and a guy with a hood and a torch walking in them and digging.

13. Buddy wanted me convert a hard drive to a external, needed some copying and formatting. He had tons of pictures of arctic sea life. It was like every walrus, seal, etc on Google image search was saved to his drive. Pretty sure he did it to mess with me.

14. Neighbor asked to have their son's computer looked at because it kept bluescreening. I agreed and braced myself for a bunch of porn (the kid was 14).

Nothing. A crapload of videogames but no porn. What kind of 14 year old boy who has his own pc has no porn?

15. I had a customer who wanted me to find pictures of her son's penis on the computer.

Story:

The son had gotten in legal trouble in the past for sending unsolicited pictures of his dick to anyone and everyone. He was not allowed to use the internet on the computer, but as his parents were computer illiterate, they had no idea whether or not he was doing it again, and they wanted to find out. I ended up writing her instructions and showing her how to search for herself, as searching for pictures of her underage son's penis was in ethically murky waters. It was a good thing I did, too, because she ended up finding some.

16. I placed my hand on the users mouse and my hand stuck due to lube on the mouse. computer itself could hardly function due to pop ups.

17. Guy was having problems with his computer, so he brought it in to us for a virus removal. Standard stuff I set it up with a monitor, keyboard, etc and left it to boot up. When I came back it had booted to desktop - the background was a picture of a guy fully nude, spread eagle. I've never switched a monitor off so fast.

18. Found a folder on my mom's computer titled, "Sins of my Children" found weird poetry and IRC chat logs of some guy offering to kill my wife and me.

Photar

19. I work in a senior day center but I used to do software development so every now and then one of the other staff will ask me to fix whatever computer problems they're having. One time one of the nursing assistants asked me to look at her laptop and had brought it in. I told her I'd look at it during my lunch break (different time from hers) and she said fine. So I open the thing up in the break room only to be confronted with a bunch of windows with very explicit pictures of her and her boyfriend. Fortunately the only person in the room was across the table and couldn't see anything but I noped the hell out of there. I gave her a little crap for potentially getting me fired but was kind of fun to have her squirm knowing what I'd seen.

20. Coworker asked me to look at her husband's computer because it wouldn't boot sometimes. I took it home and plugged in a spare hdd and started transferring photos etc. Found a folder full of bestiality porn, especially pig v woman. Skipped it and finished transferring everything else. Eventually found out the problem was a pinched IDE cable so I replaced it and left the spare hdd in as a free backup drive. Ran a virus scan and deleted the porn folder.

When I gave the pc back my coworker mentioned her husband was worried that a virus may have downloaded something to break it. I didn't know how much she actually knew or if it was actually her files, etc.. I simply told her that the software they used for downloading music (it was kazza or limewire, I forgot) could easily be the reason why they got the viruses I removed and they should be wary of any file that wasn't an .mp3.

Never spoke of it again but they paid me $100 more than what I asked. Not bad for a kid in high school.

21. I don't do the job anymore but once I did an install where they ordered playboy channel for their service (no big deal), but as soon as I get there he starts "you have the playboy channel on there right?", I look at the order and say..."yeah".

So I'm doing the install and his wife offers me a drink and food. I turn it down (we are suppose to, job policy). I also had to do a virus check on their computer. So after I finish the install for the cable he says "okay, show us the playboy channel". Usually people wait for us to leave so it was weird to look up the channel and watch porn in a guys house with his wife on a 65 inch tv. so I excuse myself to work on the computer, AS soon as I log in the last page he was on was importing foreign women for sex (like mail order brides), the next tab was for orgies and the next tab was for craigslist.

I didn't go to far into it because it was just REALLY awkward as I heard the sounds from the TV downstairs. So when I go to leave, him and his wife don't look at me and they are fixated on the porn. I say my goodbye speech but they don't even turn.

It was just weird all around for me.

22. Half an inch of fluffy, sticky white gunk coating every inch of the interior.

It was a podiatrists office.

It was next to a sort of booth where they would grind the calluses off of old people's feet.

I didn't know that when I opened it up. I just knew it smelled faintly of burnt hair.

ramblingnonsense

23. I was setting up my grandfathers printer and he warned me "there's a lot of porn on there" (meaning the PC). I laughed and showed him how to delete his search history.

Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like

Giphy

My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

My dad is a stairbuilder and I spent many summers working at his warehouse, so I can clear this up. 14.

Saturdays

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

Iraq

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

$40

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

Crayons

Giphy

I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

Emailing NASA

A woman was adamant that looking at the big solar eclipse on the television was unsafe unless you were wearing glasses. She wouldn't believe us and insisted on emailing NASA to check.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Albert or Arnold

Whether Albert Einstein or Arnold Schwarzenegger would be more useful to have around during a Zombie apocalypse. How on earth would Albert Einstein come in handy!?

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.


I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Tomash

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.


An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

Whales Are Mammals

I was in an online chat room one day, and we were talking about whales. I commented on how whales are mammals and the next thing you know, someone was arguing with me and trying to convince me that a whale was a fish.

Microwaves

Stupid microwaves. Having a man child talk down to me about how microwaves work only for him to google it and prove me right. He slept on the sofa that night.

Shower Schedule

My friend keeps telling me that the norm is that a person should shower once a week. This has been going on for years. I'm almost convinced he's trolling me.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence

Giphy

How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

Male Chickens

I repeatedly had the argument with a friend over whether roosters were chickens. She was convinced that only the females were chickens (hens). We were 18 at the time.

Lightning McQueen

Me and my friend were drinking underage, we ended up in an argument of whether lightning McQueen's eyes were blue or green. Somehow throughout the whole thing both of us never thought to straight up google a picture.

Time Zones Exist

Coworker claimed that it was the same time of day and the same season on the whole globe. Had to get 4 coworkers to confirm to him that time zones do in fact exist.

Colorblind

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?"

"that's orange"

"no, it's red"

"orange"

"YOU CANT EVEN KNOW"

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Andre 2000?

Giphy

I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)


The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.

Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.


I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.

Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.

Jewish

Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.

Nutella

Giphy

3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.

Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.

Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.

Frisby2007

Telekinesis

My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.

dude_bizarro

Ghosts

How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).


How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.

Dogs and Chocolate

Giphy

I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.

My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

For the record, it is no to both questions.

Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.

Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.

Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.

Stars In Their Multitude

Giphy

I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.

Colorblind

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.

Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...

Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
